Subject: Amendments to West Perrine Community Redevelopment Agency
Community Redevelopment Plan





STAFF RECOMMENDATION

It is recommended that the Board of the West Perrine Community Redevelopment Agency (the “CRA”) adopt the attached Resolution amending the West Perrine Community Redevelopment Agency’s Redevelopment Plan (the “Plan”) and the CRA Board recommend the amendment’s approval by the Board of County Commissioners (the “BCC”). The adoption of the plan amendment (Attachment A) by the CRA and the BCC will enable the CRA to provide right-of-way enhancement services and enhanced community policing in the West Perrine CRA Area (the “Area”).

Scope of Agenda item

This resolution provides for amendments to the Plan to include right-of-way enhancement as a redevelopment strategy and broadens the existing community policing redevelopment strategy to include the State definition of community policing. The area lies within Commission District 9.

Fiscal Impact/Funding Source

The CRA revenue source is generated through the incremental growth in ad valorem revenues beyond an established base year, as defined in Section 163.387 of Florida State Statutes. Fiscal Year 2007-08 tax increment revenues total $672,258.

Track Record/Monitor

This resolution does not provide for contracting with any specific entity. The resolution approves amendments to the CRA’s Plan.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND

On June 5, 2007, the BCC approved the establishment of the West Perrine CRA when it approved the Plan pursuant to Resolution R-744-07, the funding of the Plan when it enacted Ordinance 07-79 which created the CRA Trust Fund, and appointed itself as the CRA Board pursuant to Resolution 745-07.

In my capacity as Executive Director, I recommend that the CRA approve the amendments to the Plan to add right-of-way enhancement as a redevelopment strategy and broaden the existing community policing redevelopment strategy to include the State definition of community policing. The right-of-way enhancement strategy will allow for right-of-way enhancement crews to perform tasks similar to those performed by the Neighborhood Enhancement Action Teams (NEAT) operated by the County Public Works Department. The crew members will proactively and responsively enhance the safety and appearance of the CRA Area rights-of-way by removing litter and small trash piles, clearing debris from drain tops on roadways and swales, trimming vegetation blocking signs or sidewalks, and filling small potholes. Potholes and trash piles which are too large to be filled or removed by the crews would be reported to the appropriate County departments for action. The CRA intends to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Public Works Department to provide these services in the area.

Additionally, the amendment to the Community Policing/Youth Activities redevelopment strategy incorporates the State definition of community policing (FSS 163.340(23)). This amendment will allow the CRA to supplement the standard police patrol presence in the community with additional security patrols. The CRA intends to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding with the General Services Administration Department to contract for security service in the area.

Both of the aforementioned amendments will allow the CRA to provide immediate relief to the presence of unsanitary, unsafe conditions identified in the Finding of Necessity of the Area; conditions which create a negative image for the community and make it difficult to attract investment.

The Tax Increment Financing Coordinating Committee preliminarily reviewed the Plan amendment on April 7, 2008 and is scheduled to conduct its final review on May 21, 2008.
